    Thank you. That fits under the general Automation Section perfectly, I'll add it.

    Sweet. So now it's a sticky.
    How about someone from NI gives a ROUGH approximation when we might expect some of these?
    I'd settle for a YEAR in which we might expect it, when we can't have the quarter - which would be ideal.

    Considering the past that would be unwise, if they give an ETA and it fails there will be a flood of complaints.

    Please add to smaller enhancements the ability for Maschine to habdle exFAT formatted external hard drives.

    They fixed that recently for Kontakt.

    I believe that is more of a bug-fix rather than a feature.

    You mean add the MK3 save menu to the older controllers? Although older models don't have a File button it shouldn't be a problem, the Save one could be used at least in the Studio model. Feel free to open a suggestion thread about this topic.

    Hi all,

    On the mk3 give a use to the smart strip when none of the modes (notes,PerformFX,Pitch,MOD) are activated.
    time navigation on the smart strip could provide a great experience, i'm feeling a little bit orphelin without the two arrows of my old mikro mk2

    I completely agree i have said that before too, i also fell like the Main encoder should also have a default function, like controlling the playhead in the main Menu instead of us having to press shift.
    Feel free to make a Feature suggestion.
    What do you mean by the 2 arrows though? These?

    I totally agree, smart strip and main encoder should have a defaut function

    These two arrows on the mikro mk2. We were able to jump 1 bar forward or backward, the smart strip could replace these.

    How about this - New instruments create new scenes, and new scenes create new patterns.

    The latter already exists which eliminated at least one button push (Pattern + Pads) if someone wanted. How about eliminating one more by adding new instruments creates new scenes? Or even better - the 1st note of a new instrument creates a new scene when recording. Smart cue for a new scene to launch. This means we have a little more fun performing, meanwhile the scenes get auto sorted by instruments for later production work. Thats two birds. Of course, a toggle button to turn this on/off, like the latter.

    Features like this, auto save, will keep a musician focused on the core, on things that actually make music through performing,16 pads & 8 knobs. Lets clear the stage and free our hands for them as soon as play or record is pushed. Shift + this and that should not be a part of an ongoing performance as much as possible. Not saying we should remove all, but theres another.

    Drag and Drop ALL patterns audio from Idea View to Ableton Session View, all at once in the same order with names. Versus exporting Maschine Section Stems or Patterns Individually.

    Need a thread for advanced host integration for Studio One. It's a crime that it isn't already there!

    Did someone document Sequencer Features already?

    It would be nice if NI had a public roadmap for what's coming, especially with using or wanting to use certain things in the context of a professional scenario. I.e. if advanced host integration is in the works for a particular DAW, well, let's hear about it.

    Why? There are tons of DAW's that don't have advanced host integration, mostly it's only available for Live & Logic, maybe Cubase depending what controller you're referring to especially.
